My Motivational Story

Written and art work by Blue Iris Angel

Here is a beautiful little story that helped me in my recovery. Condition is only as strong as I let it be. I always have two choices: to use my freedom or give it to condition(ED). I really liked this story because it shows me that to recover is actually very simple and that if I feed the Freedom wolf the condition wolf losses.

I drew my own version of the story, I hope this could help you too:)

A little reflection piece about an old Cherokee chief teaching his grandson about life

“A terrible fight is going on inside me. The same fight is going on inside you and inside other people too.

It is a fight between two wolves.

The first wolf speaks to me of evil – anger, guilt, shame, envy, resentment, self-pity, dishonesty, self-doubt and ego.

The other wolf speaks to me of good – joy, peace, love, serenity, self-confidence, courage, kindness, humility, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

Wide-eyed, the young boy thought about this then asked his grandfather:

“But which wolf will win?”

The old chief simply replied, “The one I feed”
